  1. 1. Complexity Theory and Physics Education Research The Case of Student Retention in Physics and Related Degree Programmes

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jonas Forsman; Cedric Linder; Ismo Koponen; [2015]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics Education Research; Complexity Theory; Student Retention; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis explores the use of complexity theory in Physics Education Research as a way to examine the issue of student retention (a university’s ability to retain its students). University physics education is viewed through the concepts of nestedness and networked interactions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Adaptive Logistics - Using Complexity Theory to Facilitate Increased Effectiveness in Logistics

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Packaging Logistics, Department of Design Sciences

    Författare :Fredrik Nilsson; [2005]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; complexity thinking ; epistemology; logistics; logistics systems ; paradigm; Teknik; Technological sciences; complexity theory ;

    Sammanfattning : Logistics is gaining increased attention in companies since interconnectivity is increasing, and the interdependence among actors is enhanced due to challenges organizations are facing today (market changes, novel strategies, and technological improvements). While the logistics discipline has been characterized by an efficiency focus based on positivistic assumptions, the challenges of today require a focus on effectiveness i. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Learning ecosystem complexity A study on small-scale fishers’ ecological knowledge generation

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Packaging Logistics, Department of Design Sciences

    Författare :Diana Garavito-Bermúdez; Camilla Thunborg; Cecilia Lundholm; Beatrice Crona; Alan Reid; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; small-scale fishers; informal learning; knowledge generation; systems thinking; ecological knowledge; ecosystem complexity; work practices; emotional bonds to place; sustainable fisheries management; environmental learning; Vättern; Blekinge; Baltic Sea.; pedagogik; Education;

    Sammanfattning : Small-scale fisheries are learning contexts of importance for generating, transferring, and updating ecological knowledge of natural environments through everyday work practices. The rich knowledge fishers have of local ecosystems is the result of the intimate relationship fishing communities have had with their natural environments across generations (see e. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The dissertation concerns F. A. Hayek’s (1899–1992) critique of legislation. The purpose of the investigation is to clarify and assess that critique. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Models and Complexity Results in Real-Time Scheduling Theory

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Department of Law

    Författare :Pontus Ekberg; Wang Yi; Alberto Marchetti-Spaccamela; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Real-time systems; Scheduling theory; Task models; Computational complexity; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot inbyggda system; Computer Science with specialization in Embedded Systems;

    Sammanfattning : When designing real-time systems, we want to prove that they will satisfy given timing constraints at run time. The main objective of real-time scheduling theory is to analyze properties of mathematical models that capture the temporal behaviors of such systems. LÄS MER
